Triple H Discusses Talent Moving Between Rosters

Whether it's the wild card rule, a call-up, or a brand to brand invitation, WWE has the ability to float roster members across three brands.

In recent memory fans have seen Matt Riddle moved from NXT to SmackDown, Apollo Crews moved from SmackDown to Raw, and Finn Balor moved from Raw to NXT.

Speaking on the NXT TakeOver XXX post-show media call, Triple H discussed the ability to freshen up characters with a brand switch.

"I think everybody's career is going to have ups and downs, there is going to be moments in time where you're on top, in the middle, when you're used a lot, when you're not used quite as much, that is the long-term position that we're in and you see that across the board. Wherever talent has the ability to have the most value, is where they should be. That's the exciting thing about Raw, SmackDown, and NXT, having all that programming and then some, talk about the UK and everything we're doing now and in the near future. You just create opportunities. You go to one place, it's not everything everyone wants it to be, and you have the opportunity to go to a new territory, so to speak, within the same company, and reboot yourself. I think you'll see that in the years to come, across the board. You'll see talent move from Raw to SmackDown and have a rebirth. We saw that in the brands now. Apollo Crews is in a different role, he switches, and that's a giant change for him. You'll see it everywhere and it's a great thing for talent, it's all opportunity. Once you get that opportunity, how do things pan out creatively, there will always be ups and downs. The opportunity to do it in multiple places where everyone can succeed in someplace, across the board, and have long careers that are very meaningful without that burnout factor long-term," he said.
